Good question: does the advertiser mark the exact spot or do they just give an address and bing returns the location?

Use the announcement thread in the Map forum to find and fill out the form for reporting incorrect locations regardless of the advertiser.

Updating Dunkin Donuts location?

Postby AlanOfTheBerg » Fri Jan 04, 2013 10:48 pm

To resolve it we are supposed to fill out the form Waze has provided and posted links to.


iOS and Tapatalk have conspired to screw up this post.

No, these aren't for incorrect POIs, these forms are for reporting incorrect advertisement placement only.

Since this thread started with talking about Dunkin Donuts and then Taco Bell, the threads linked to are appropriate for reporting incorrect advertisement placements.

Just wondering if anybody has any updates on this. I noticed this morning, that the Dunkin Donuts location on the Waze Maps is incorrect.... Wondering if we can update.

Thanks for the help! I have gone over to Bing and submitted a "map correction feedback" submission.

I found a very misplaced D&D this morning (the address listed is correct, the pin is just off by miles)... The error isn't coming from Bing (or Google, or Yelp, or FourSquare, or YP)... Another had the hours listed incorrectly (Waze said they opened at 5am, but they weren't even close to being open at 5:10am).

This leads me to believe that, as Yonatan said (see my post above), the info (the address, location & hours) came directly from Dunkin & are in a private advertising database and not from the traditional search providers.

Bing overlays and google gps plots.. Go figure..

The advertiser (i.e. Taco Bell) provides the location information to Waze.
